The 2016 NFL season enters its third week and a much-hyped matchup is on its way for fans to enjoy. Two undefeated teams cross paths on Sunday—both of them hailing from the state of Pennsylvania.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are looking hot this season, putting on outstanding performances night in and night out. But the Philadelphia Eagles have a run of their own—a first-year quarterback looking like an early candidate for Rookie of the Year honors.

An ancient, nearly 1,700-year-old Hebrew scroll has finally been deciphered by using complex digital analysis, revealing that it contains verses from the book of Leviticus in the Bible, scientists announced in a major archaeological breakthrough.
LiveScience reported on Wednesday that the En-Gedi scroll, which for centuries had been unreadable due to a fire that left it charred 1,400 years ago, has now been "virtually unwrapped" by researchers at the University of Kentucky.
"We're reading a real scroll. It hasn't been read for millennia. Many thought it was probably impossible to read," said Brent Seales, a professor in the computer science department at the University of Kentucky. more >>
Roman Catholic Church leader Pope Francis has said that even if it may be hard for some Christians, they must believe in the real and logical, bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ, rather than interpreting it simply as a spiritual experience.
Francis said at a recent morning mass that Christians should embrace the "logic of the future," which promises that believers will rise in body and soul after death, like Jesus did.
"A spiritualistic piety, a nuanced piety is much easier; but to enter into the logic of the flesh of Christ, this is difficult. And this is the logic of the day after tomorrow. We will resurrect like the risen Christ, with our own flesh," the pontiff explained, according to Catholic News Service. more >>
WASHINGTON – Religious groups contribute $1.2 trillion to the U.S. economy, more than the top 10 tech companies combined.
Consider the contributions of Apple, Google and Amazon on the American economy: they pale in comparison to faith organizations. Plus, unlike the tech giants, faith groups devote the bulk of their resources to helping the poor and suffering.
"For the first time, we have been able to quantify what religious institutions, faith-based charities, and even businesses inspired by faith contribute to our country," said Georgetown University's Michael Grim, co-author of the study, at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., Wednesday. more >>
Young Earth Creationist Ken Ham said in a speech at Cedarville University, a private Baptist school in Ohio, that believing God created the world in six days serves almost as a "litmus test" on biblical authority, and warned that disagreeing with it is taking man's word over God's.
Ham said in his presentation on why it is important for Christians to believe in six literal days of creation that in a way it is "almost a litmus test on biblical authority."
"Talking about the six days, what we're really talking about is does it really matter what God says. It's an authority issue," he said on Thursday. more >>
A new fossil discovery makes it even tougher for Darwinists to explain the origin of life.
There's an old story about a chemist, a physicist, and an economist stranded on a desert island with nothing to eat but a can of soup. Puzzling over how to open the can, the chemist says, "Let's heat the can until it swells and bursts from the buildup of gases." "No, no," says the physicist, "let's throw it off that cliff with just enough kinetic energy to split it open on the rocks below." The economist, after thinking a moment says, "Assume a can opener."
There's more than one trade that deals in assumptions. The way Darwinists approach the origin of life is a lot like that economist's idea for opening the can. The Darwinian mechanism of mutation and natural selection explains everything about life, we're told — except how it began. "Assume a self-replicating cell containing information in the form of genetic code," Darwinists are forced to say. Well, fine. But where did that little miracle come from? more >>
